Remember Dell and Jack coming to visit Mom in the hospital in 1993

Remember Dell and Norma were always together. I might be mistaken but I believe Jackie was born on the day that JFK was inaugurated and so was named for the new First Lady. Remember when Mom was sick in 1993, Dell and Jack came to visit. They cheered Mom up tremendously.
I don’t know how we are related, but we were always at Phyliss’ birthday party. Think Grandma Cook (O’Leary) was related somehow.
Tim (my brother) lives near Detroit and so do Scott.
